A couple of years ago I posted a blog story (on a blog now defunct) about The Kinetic Grand Championship getting a small (quite small) blurb in ESPN the magazine.
So I as I browse through the current issue (this one with Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young on the cover)
When I got to the Page 2 section of the magazine, there on the corner of the page was the What 2 Watch 4 (W2W4) section. This little space is reserved for announcing some big sporting events, and some that often fall off the radar outside the region where they are taking place. I often see a cheese rolling contests, or the National Freeze Tag Championships. Once I even saw an announcement for the World Air Guitar Championships.
So right there in a small corner setting beneath a picture of Lebron James’ head superimposed on a hockey player from the Montreal Canadians was the What to Watch for calender. It appears ESPN the magazine loves our little race we have on Memorial Day weekend.
The caption reads:
“Artsy competitors gather in Humboldt County, Calif., May 29-31 to race giant buoyant, sculpture-y crafts. Want to see a museum in motion? Then you want kineticgrandchampionship.com”
